General Assembly programme groups

The scientific programme of each General Assembly includes Union-wide symposia and great debates, interdisciplinary events, outreach and education sessions, short courses, as well as disciplinary sessions covering the full spectrum of the Earth, planetary and the space sciences.

Each programme group chair co-ordinates the scientific programme of its relevant group.

Programme groups are part of the Programme Committee. For more information see the Programme Committee page of the General Assembly.
